The birthdays of the E's are three weeks apart. So things get a bit busy around here. After the fairy cake, I needed something a bit easier to execute. So Mister e had a caterpillar for his First Birthday.
I made a big batch of Seven Minute Frosting because it is so light and fluffy and has a beautiful sheen. It also takes color well.
The caterpillar sections were baked in my glass mixing bowls and then carved to fit one another.
Then I started to tint the frosting a little bit green and frosted the head and tail.
Adding some more green, I then frosted the next sections...
Finally I added more green and frosted the middle and added chocolate stick legs and miniature oreo spots.
After all the spun sugar challenges, I wasn't up to creating legs or anything else.
Mister e thought it was very good and ate the entire head.
